Treating depression as a symptom provides the opportunity to examine, locate and treat the actual causes of the depression. I provide causal-based depression treatment and support care. Depression can be treated and the symptoms of depression can be alleviated with proper treatment. Depression is responsive to multiple forms of therapy and after identifying the cause of depression, targeted treatment can be applied to alleviate symptoms and restore emotional well-being.

I help people struggling with depression by helping them to explore the history/causes of their depression, normalize and validate their emotions, create solutions to real life problems when applicable, and to create and grow hope & optimism. When depression appears to be the result of a biological problem like thyroid issues or chemical imbalances I help clients to find doctors who can evaluate them and then work with them on issues related to their depression. Medication tends to help with the symptoms of depression but doesn't do much to address the underlying thoughts, feelings, and history that have caused or contributed to the depression.

I assist clients with exploring how much their depression is based on unfulfilled desires or wishes, and how much it is based in a history of feeling neglected, unseen, unloved, etc. I use various techniques and processes, such as CBT therapy, hypnotherapy, EMDR, Byron Katie, and other techniques to help my clients release themselves from the grip of the depression as they are more able to access their wise, loving inner selves.

Some established theories about what causes depression include “Anger turned inward”, “early Object Loss”, and “the inability to Grieve”. It think it is no coincidence that Depression and Anger are two of the stages of Grief which Kubler-Ross identified as a normal aspects of resolving significant loss. Normal Grief and Bereavement can become complicated by any kind of overwhelming or traumatic experience. I find that Somatic approaches such as Sensorimotor Psychotherpy are ideal for working with Depression, as it reconnects us with the deeper natural healing resources available to us when we pay attention to the wisdom of the body as it communicates on multiple levels.

Depression is usually about the past. Such as, things that have happened to you, losses you have had, things that have been said to you or by you. Bad memories get us down yet we do not have to stay in that place of sadness. Also, depression has no energy so it is difficult to do the things we need to do in order to feel better. Take the first step and make an appointment. Each step leads to another step. Depression is very treatable.

We all go through ups and downs in our moods. Sadness is a normal reaction to life's struggles, setbacks, and disappointments. Many people use the word "Depression" to explain these kind of feelings, but depression is much more than just sadness. Whatever the symptoms, depression is different from nornal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. Getting the support you need plays a big role in lifting the fog of depression and keeping in away. On your own, it can be difficult to maintain perspective and sustain the effort required to beat depression. Please contact me for help and support.

Therapy can provide a safe place for you to express and explore these feelings. We'll talk about possible triggers and coping skills.

Sadness and depression have many causes, and therefore people respond differently to various treatment approaches. I can help you discover your own unique triggers for depression, and work with you to find the best treatment for you. Though medication has it's value in some circumstances, I view medication as a last resort after all other interventions have failed. Therapy has been proven to help people feel better faster. Let me help you begin the healing process.
